Daniele De Rossi ‘very happy’ with Roma’s progress since his arrival

Andy Mattioli

Roma boss Daniele De Rossi praised his side for adapting quickly to his ideas and translating his instructions into a streak of positive results except for the defeat with Inter.

In his post-match interview with Sky Sport following the Giallorossi’s victory over Feyenoord on penalties, De Rossi noted, “I’m very happy with what I’m seeing, especially as I haven’t been here that long. There are still lots of things to do.”

“Teams still have to perfect certain things even after working together for ages. After so many years, you may have to work on the mental aspect too. You’ve got to drive players that hear the same voice every day for two or three years, a voice that keeps repeating the same ideas.”

“At the moment we’ve got to work on those ideas, on not doing too much damage or upsetting things too much. These are the ideas that led us to playing a first half today in which we deserved to have the lead.”
